The UK is an island nation in Western Europe, comparable to the size of Victoria and a treasure for students wishing to follow in the footsteps of the Ancient Celts, Saxon tribes, Roman legions and Viking warriors. From the frenzy of world-famous London to sleepy villages, the UK is renowned for its natural beauty and rough outdoors.
The British culture is very diverse and there is no such thing as a uniform ‘British culture’. Instead, it is either English, Scottish, Welsh, Northern Irish, or, indeed Asian British etc. With over 16,000 towns and villages, a broad array of accents and dialects evolved over time throughout England and left a remarkable voiceprint across the different regions. The Scottish culture remains vibrant, colourful and with its own distinct traditions.
Impressive megaliths, castles and modern architecture mark the landscapes and reflect its centuries-long history. Home to Shakespeare, Will and Kate, Mr Bean, mysterious Stonehenge, Loch Ness, Big Ben and last but not least Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the UK has never stopped to catch everyone’s attention around the world.
